The Science of Interstellar – Wired


How director, Christopher Nolan, and physicist, Kip Thorne, combined CG effects and scientific reality to create the most accurate visualization of a black hole in film history.

Franklin knew that his computers would do anything he told them to. That was a problem and a temptation. “It’s very easy to fall into the trap of breaking the rules of reality,” says Franklin, a senior supervisor of Academy Award-winning effects house Double Negative. “And those rules are actually quite strict.

So he asked Thorne to generate equations that would guide their effects software the way physics governs the real world. They started with wormholes. “If light around a wormhole wouldn’t behave classically—that is, travel in a straight line—what would it do? How could that be described mathematically?

The Science of Interstellar

The Discovery Channel special on the actual hard science behind the concepts of wormholes and quantum singularities explored in the science fiction epic “Interstellar” from visionary director Christopher Nolan.


Interstellar Movie – Kip Thorne Featurette


Kip Thorne is an American theoretical physicist, known for his contributions in gravitational physics and astrophysics. Thorne 4 years after having worked on Interstellar was awarded the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics along with Rainer Weiss and Barry C. Barish “for decisive contributions to the LIGO detector and the observation of gravitational waves“.

Thorne talks about his scientific research and more, including Christopher Nolan on the set with actors and the scientist on building the atmosphere of the film.
